made by michele bachmann. she compared herself to john wayne from waterloo. but john wayne was from winterset, iowa. it was john wayne gasey from waterloo. she said up to 30,000 people were killed in an obama air strike. it was not only completely wrong, but the number killed in a moammar gadhafi crackdown on protesters. do missteps matter to you or do news organizations make too much of them? fibbed out what bachmann said on [ female announcer ] keurig brews more than just hot coffee. now you can brew over ice for delicious iced coffee or tea. hot or cold, keurig is the way to brew everyone's favorite cup in under a minute. choose. brew. enjoy. keurig. >>> actor gary is supporting the troops one guitar cord at a time. >> lisa talked with the actor about his mission to honor the women and men who serve. >> his most famous role. >> lieutenant dan. >> lieutenant dan. >> lieutenant dan. >> playing alongside tom hanks in forest gump. gary wears minihats. currently starring on the hit show, csi, new york. off the set he's an advocate for military members and their fa

term member of congress from minnesota, going to her hometown, waterloo, iowa, no coincidence there, to launch her campaign for president. >> government thinks it knows better how to spend our money. government thinks they know better how to make a better life for us. they think they create jobs. they even think they can make us healthier. but that's not the case. we have to recapture the founders' vision of a constitutionally conservative government if we are to secure the promise for the future. >> fueled by tea party power, she immediately shot to second place in the latest polls from both iowa and new hampshire. how did she do that? >> i think the biggest reason is she does not have a former in front of her. the other candidates are former governors. or -- so she's an of the moment politician. she has had her rise during this very interesting time in the republican party, she became of age, at least of national prominence, last year during the midterm elections, was the best fundraiser of any republican member of the house. so now in the early part of the year she wanted to be i
in waterloo and spent her early years in iowa. i think pawlenty may surprise some people. he's gotten a lot of key people involved in his campaign. he is aggressively campaigning throughout the state. so it's kind of interesting. here you've got two minnesotans competing. but they're not the only ones. i think you need to look at herman cane who's got a following here, and ron paul, and rick santorum says he's going to beat people's expectations. who knows what rick perry's write-in efforts may produce. it looks like he will get in the race after the straw poll. so it could be a wide open situation. who knows? is there may be others that i haven't even mentioned that could do better than expected. >> i wonder how you would assess governor perry's ability to in iowa.effectively what kind of an iowa candidate might he make? >> well, remember, george w. bush, who was the governor of texas at the time, won both the straw poll and the iowa caucuses and went on to be elected president of the united states twice. so being governor of a big state like texas, a state that's been very successful in e

of this incident from a cell phone. look at that fireball on the highway near waterloo, new york. this from a person driving by in a car. write to jamie colby in our newsroom now, what caused this one? >> reporter: showing that video is really amazing because it's incredible there were any survivors. a tractor-trailer rear ended a tour bus, and both became engulfed in flames on a highway in new york. it actually took firefighters, bill, 45 minutes to just get this massive blaze under control. the driver of the tractor-trailer's now identified as a 59-year-old man from michigan. he was killed. and of the 52 people on that bus, at least 30 had injuries ranging, we're told, from minor to serious. two were confirmed as critical. it is miraculous that 22 people walked away from that bus without any injuries, but the death count would likely have been much higher had it not been for a soldier stationed at nearby fort drum, new york, who happened to be driving behind the crash when it happened. he pulled several of the injured from the burning bus. incredible. bill: this seems to be happening a lo

of waterloo, iowa is the birthplace of john wayne when actually it's the birthplace of john wayne gacy. >> i think there is something to that. like gacy, people might think you're a clown if they dig a little deeper, they'll find that you are deadly serious. when you stumble on facts, don't get back into a corner. you double down. you say not only do you have the spirit of john wayne gacy, you've got the eyes of a young charles manson. >> john quincy adams most center was a part revolutionary war era. he was a young boy, but he was actively involved. >> but he wasn't a founding father. i mean, he was 9 at the time. if he'd signed the declaration of independence, this is what it would have looked like. >> former illinois governor rod blagojevich. >> hands shaky, can't seem to stand on my own two feet. hands are weak. >> recording elvis on your way here. a criminal verdict and you go with, "all shook up"? jailhouse rock didn't come up? >> 17 of the 20 corruption chorgs. extortion, water fraud, bribery and criminal abuse of styling moose. >> >> try to speak a little less. i'm going to keep my r
the iowa caucuses. it's where she was born, waterloo iowa, she represents minnesota, right next door. why you showed former governor, tim pawlenty, as long as michele bachmann is number two in the polls, as long as she's nipping at mitt romney's heels, there's noerr for tim pawlenty, if he doesn't win iowa, where does he win? >> it always shows the weakness of the guy who's been thought of as the front runner, romney. and it doesn't strike me that rove and company are particularly out to protect romney, they just want bachmann out of this race. she's the distraction, she's the one they believe can never be president so let's not pretend she can be the nominee. >> folks like carl rove are the establishment, but also the establishment that want to win, they want to beat president obama. they all know, michele bachmann might be able to win the republican nomination, but could she go toe-to-toe with president obama with all the incumbent advantages he has, could she beat him? not a chance. >> the obama administration is trying to figure out how to say it's perfectly okay to have the occasiona
in waterloo, iowa. >> as opposed to john wayne -- >> that will be a problem for the general -- >> as opposed to john wayne gacy. >> bachmann has a reputation of going over the top. >> she once referred to the obama administration as gangster government. >> that has no impact on her ability to win the republican presidential nomination. even when she makes these statements, like the founders or whatever, she's exactly in tune with most republican grass roots activists who will be the core of her support. >> does it seem to you, michelle kyle, that conservative women are given a harder time in the press for those mistakes as opposed so something biden would have said. >> what i'm going to be interested in, if rick perry jumps into the race, are we going to see a lot of questions where people like, are you completely nuts? are they going to use this same kind after proof approach? rick perry has a tendency to say lots of over the top things. >> if there is a tendency to, like you said, michele bachmann is an unguided missile, does that bother you as a woman, that there is that built-in sum sngs

that the battle of waterloo was won on the playing field. roosevelt never seen anything quite so picky about the battle of san juan hill, but when he emerged from the spanish-american war as a national hero, one who was talked about as possibly presidential timber, he knew how much he owed, not just to the rough riders, but to the culture of manliness and risk-taking that have shaped them. like roosevelt, our society values sports. though we don't always think about why or why we should. my kids have played football, baseball, hockey, soccer, lacrosse. in the family were fairly sports oriented. it insourcing to think about a lot of questions, why do we want our kids to play sports? why not let them spend more time in front of the tv or studied ancient greek literature? a lot of parents will reply with the obvious fact that sports are good for fitness. they will also discuss the intangible benefits of learning about teamwork, building character, things like that. it turns out that there really is something to all this. in. research shows us that kids who play sports stay in school longer. as
